G D G
The only two things in life that make it worth living
C D7 G
Is guitars that tune good and firm feeling women
C G
I don't need my name in the marquee lights
C D7 G
I got my song and I got you with me tonight
D G
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love
 
Chorus
G
Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas,
C
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
D7
This successful life we're living got us
G
Feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank William's pain songs and Newberry's train songs 
C Am
And "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain"
D7 Am
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
D7 Am G
Ain't nobody feeling no pain
 
So baby, let's sell your diamond ring 
Am D7 G
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away
This coat and tie is choking me 
Am D7 G
In your high society, you cry all day
We've been so busy keeping up with the Jones 
C Am
Four-car garage, and we're still building on
C G D G
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love
 
Chorus * 2
